    That's exactly correct. The conservatives pull for more Corporate greed. More for the Corporate in every way and every day. Ignorance personified in the movement by ignoring social responsibilities such as Global Warming, wars for big corporate profit, pollution, etc. Mitigation hurts corporate profits. OWS is intended to promote "fear" on Wall Street by a confrontation with reality.

    You have no idea if this article is true or not, and in the least you don't know the severity. There are over 10,000 people at OWS right now. Are you saying that a few skirmishes means the movement is ineffective?

    Please, get a clue. You're willfully giving into and supporting a propaganda machine whose soul purpose is to discredit this movement. You won't find one positive article in either the NY Times or NY Post about the OWS protests. They all blast it in some way or another.

    Instead of letting mass media do the thinking for you, I suggest you walk down to your local Occupy movement and talk to, you know, real people about what's going on?

    I'll take my chances with greedy corporations instead of greedy politicians. Corporations have me way more money than the government has. The only the thing government ever did was take my money.

    Yes, by taxing the poor and giving to the rich. How do you not know that? Robin Hood was a dirty, socialist bastard.

    Well, no, it was taxing everyone and giving to the government. You should do some historical research of the time period and learn that the government was trying to make everyone poor. BTW, only the land owners paid taxes in the 12th Century--the time in which Robin Hood legend is set.

    Actually, progressives have many good friends. Among them are Truth, Reality, the Historical Record, and Education. The far right lumps all those together and then claims we are trying to scare the masses because we attempt to illuminate and educate America to the evils of the far right, their sycophants and toadies and their evil works and designs.

    Re: Fights erupt among Occupiers

    Looks like Wall Street is Obama's best friend. He gets substantial campaign contributions from giants of Wall Street while giving OWS crowd the reach around.

    That's change you can depend on.

    Obama 2012 Campaign Receives More Wall Street Donations Than All GOP Candidates Combined at Pat Dollard

    Despite frosty relations with the titans of Wall Street, President Obama has still managed to raise far more money this year from the financial and banking sector than Mitt Romney or any other Republican presidential candidate, according to new fundraising data.
    As a result, Obama has brought in more money from employees of banks, hedge funds and other financial service companies than all of the GOP candidates combined, according to a Washington Post analysis of contribution data. The numbers show that Obama retains a persistent reservoir of support among Democratic financiers who have backed him since he was an underdog presidential candidate four years ago.

    Don't listen to the media, they're biased! Instead go talk to the people actually protesting because obviously they're not biased.



    Even if the media is biased, which I admit is a possibility, people actually DOING the protests are ALSO going to likely be biased but simply biased TOWARDS the protests. All you're doing is trading one bias you don't like for a bias you do like.

    That reply makes no sense on any level in advancing any idea of any kind.

    by the way - how are you coming along on those other state referendum votes of the people on secession in the Civil War era?
